Dreaming of Home...

Monday, August 06, 2012

So some of you might know that at the minute Dave & I do not live together, now that we are engaged we can not wait to move in together. But we have to wait until he finishes his PhD & we know which country he gets a job in. Probably it will be Holland. With this all coming into play in the next 6 months or so its got me day dreaming about having my own home. Somewhere reflecting our tastes, decorated the way we want..
A great site for gathering inspiration is Fashion for Home, here are a few of my wishlist pieces!

Im not sure how to sum up my interior tastes... I like to think its eclectic and retro, I like worn and vintage pieces mixed with contemporay colours and shapes. I just love the Copine chair set featured above it reminds me of the chairs in my primary school except uber stylish! You can find lots more images that have inspired me & had me day dreaming over at my pinterest.

  1. Gorgeous homeware! I currently live in a rented house, where most of the furniture was provided and isn't to my taste, so I can't wait to live in a house where I get to pick my own stuff! Fashion at home have some lovely pieces. I can imagine you liking Graham & Green too - they have some gorgeous furniture xo
